I Wan'na Be Like You
King Louie
Ababa doo doot doobadoop!
Now, I'm the king of the swingers- oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's botherin' me

I wanna be a man, man-cub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!

King Louie (Monkey Chorus)
Oh, oobee doo! (hoopdeewee)
I wanna be like you-hoo-hoo! (hapdeedoobydoowop)
I wanna walk like you (cheep)
Talk like you (cheep), too-ooh-o (weebydeebydeewoo)

You'll see it's true (shoobedeedoo)
An ape like me-e-e (scoobeedoobeedoobeep)
Can learn to be
Hu-u-u-man too-ooh-ooh!
(Singing Scat)

Gee, Cousin Louie! You're doing real good.
King Louie
Now here's your part of the deal, 'cause... lay the secret on me, of man's red fire.
But I don't know how to make fire!

King Louie
Now, don't try to kid me, man-cub
I made a deal with you!
What I desire is man's red fire
To make my dream come true!

Now gimme the secret, man-cub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man's red flower
So I can be like you!

Baloo / King Louie
Hey! (Singing Scat)

Yoo-hoo-hoo! (hoopdeeweep)
I wanna be like you-ooh-ooh! (hapdeedoobedoobop)
I wanna walk like you (cheep)
Talk like you (cheep), too-ooh-ooh (weebadeebadoodop)
You'll see it's true-ooh-ooh (Shhobeedeeboo)
Someone like me-ee-ee (scoobeedoobeedooweep)
Can learn to be
Like someone like me!

Take me home, daddy!

Can learn to be
Like someone like you!

King Louie
One more time!

Can learn to be like someone like me-e-e-e-e-e!
(Singing Scat)
